Tintern Abbey

#1 Post by mattycoops43 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:12 pm

Hi guys an gals.

I am in Newport, and fancy doing a run up to Tintern, along the river, and via Ross on Wye, back down through Coleford, and Sling to end up back at J24 again.

Anyone fancy joining me? Just thought I would do it ona Saturday when the sun is out, and it's looking a bit better now generally.

Nice bendy scenic route, so not wanting to go flying round, more interested in taking in the scenery, although if some others want to come more than happy to let others set the pace, within reason!

Also happy to go with any new riders on 125's if you're interested.

Sounding out the response so let me know if you're up for it and we'll plan it accordingly.

I am right by the J24 roundabout, and there is a maccers there, so makes sense to meet here, but happy to meet somewhere else if it suits others.

Awesome route Matt, would be up for it provided it doesn't clash with my rather busy schedule :roll:
Currently OK for next weekend.
McD's at the Coldra is good for me.

Awesome! Well up for doing this, TC-do you fancy meeting up with us if we plan it for when you come over for the tags? Maybe a practise run next wkd? as long as I get the carbs cleaned out and back on the bike. I just took them off!
